A local energy club is a club of households that group together in an area where there is also local energy generation (for example, hydro or solar schemes). These households use energy meters that accurately track how much energy they use and when they use it. They are then charged different rates for the energy consumed depending what time of the day it is used. Each club member has a ‘share’ of the energy generated locally. At times of low demand, and where energy is also generated locally, club members will be charged a lower rate. The model fosters a connection between energy users and local energy generation, and tackles fuel poverty by allowing lower electricity prices.
The aim of this project is to pilot the creation of a local energy club in South Denbighshire.
